Nationals' Max Scherzer: Available out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer will be available out of the bullpen if he's needed for Game 4 of the NLDS on Wednesday, Paul Sullivan of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Since Scherzer won't be able to make another start after toeing the rubber during Game 3 against the Cubs on Monday, he will be active in a relief role for the remainder of the series according to general manager Mike Rizzo, with "all hands on deck" as the team faces elimination. During Monday's outing, Scherzer allowed just one earned run on one hit and three walks while striking out seven in 6.1 innings.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Confirmed for Monday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (hamstring) was named as the starter for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Cubs on Monday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Scherzer was able to go through a bullpen session Friday, and should be good to go for Game 3 in Chicago. Manager Dusty Baker also confirmed that Gio Gonzalez will take the mound for Game 2 on Saturday. With Scherzer throwing Monday, he won't be able to make two starts this series, but could be an option out of the bullpen during a pivotal Game 5, if it's necessary.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: In line for Game 3 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (hamstring) will likely take the mound for Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Manager Dusty Baker doesn't want to push Scherzer too hard, and will go with Gio Gonzalez for the second game of the series, giving the right-hander a couple more days to recover from his hamstring injury. Although Scherzer was expected to throw a bullpen Thursday, the only activity he wound up doing was a little catch on the side. Baker will likely announce confirmation that Scherzer is set for Monday's tilt in the near future, which will essentially limit his availability to just one contest during the NLDS.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: To throw bullpen Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (hamstring) will toss a bullpen session Thursday, Mark Gonzales of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Manager Dusty Baker has held off on announcing his rotation for the NLDS, besides listing Stephen Strasburg as Friday's Game 1 starter, which leaves Scherzer's status up in the air as to whether he will be able to go Saturday for Game 2, or wait until the series heads to Chicago for Game 3. It appears as though the club wants to see how Scherzer's bullpen session goes before making a decision, so expect an announcement on his status within the near future.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Plays catch Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (hamstring) was able to play catch on flat ground Wednesday but did not partake in his previously planned bullpen session, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Scherzer threw from the stretch and windup during his time on flat ground, and looked relatively pleased following about 10 minutes of catch. Although he failed to make an appearance in the bullpen, everything seems to be in line for the right-hander to take the mound for Game 3 of the NLDS once the series moves to Chicago. Nothing has been announced at this point, but there is sure to be an update coming from manager Dusty Baker in the near future as to Scherzer's status.
